Cheap room, good location that allows pets

It was a clean place to sleep that allowed pets. The bed was clean and comfortable. The location was close to the falls. The continental breakfast was good. The staff was very nice. I would stay there again. It was also very affordable. It's no Sheraton, but it was less than half the price of a 4 star hotel.

Not worth the money

The hotel seriously in need of updates, looks like it hasn't update since the hotel was built. Everything in the hotel is dated. The room is duty, the smell is unbearable. Save your money, stay at different hotel.

Not good

The hotel is old and felty, and the smell is unbearable. Room is dirty, sink and tub are so old and dirty. The hotel need major update. Save your money, don't stay at this hotel.

Old...Needs updated.

It is safe (only one way in or out of the hotel). The location is fair. The cleanliness is not good. Look at the picture I took of the room. It reminds me of motel rooms in movies where a drug addict or criminal would hide out. (All brown and tan colored theme) There is only one very slow, very small elevator. It has the non-digital/mechanical buttons where nothing lights up when you press the button so you don't even know if it has received your floor request. Given everything, I would say $49.95 would be a reasonable rate for this hotel. If you pay anything more, you will absolutely be disappointed.

Very enjoyable experience, friendly staff, Good location, could not ask for more friendly people to assist you with questions on a vacation. Very short walk to the falls, Plenty of parking area, Swimming pool was very well kept.

Nice for a short stay

We arrived and it was very easy to change from a smoker to a non smoker room. (probably the child helped) The staff was very friendly and the best part of this place is the location. Everything in walking distance and since we have a newborn we stayed on the US side but to get to the canadian side is really close. Overall okay for the price and a good sauna

Friends getaway

The room was ok. How ever the cleaning of the room was not what I would expect. They didn't empty the ashtray, pick up around coffee pot. They did not leave an extra roll of toilet paper. The staff that I had contact with was always pleasant and upbeat. The convenience and location was good. We were within walking distance of the falls and casino.

Needed a place close to the Falls

Location was the primary thing this hotel has going for it. Its an older building. Our room was older and in need of updating. Vent in bathroom was plugged with dust. Beds were comfortable and seemed clean. People who pay full rates get much better rooms at this hotel. Pool and Sauna were awesome.
